If you’re a drug dealer, you probably shouldn’t fall asleep in line at the McDonald’s drive-thru.
Ryan Brasseur was awake and picking up his food by the time Michigan City police showed up at the restaurant on March 1, but that didn’t make a difference.
Brasseur was asked to pull out of line to speak with police. When he did, officers could smell marijuana coming from his car.
A K9 officer searched the 18-year-old’s car and found eight bags of pot inside. Brasseur also had a plastic bag of pot hanging out of his pocket, officers told The LaPorte County Herald-Argus.
Officers also found a bottle of vodka in the trunk of the car.
Brasseur admitted to smoking pot about three times a week and said he “purchases more to sell in small amounts.”
The marijuana found in the car weighed approximately 2 ounces, police told the Herald-Argus.
Brasseur is charged with dealing pot and illegally having alcohol. He has pleaded not guilty and is due in court in May.
